El Camino

On June 5th I left to participate in El Camino de Santiago, a journey that has changed the way I view myself and the world around me. El Camino, known as The Way of St. James, is an ancient pilgrimage trail. It is meant to follow the footsteps of the Apostle St. James, who made the journey himself with nothing more than the clothes on his back. I began my voyage in Saint Jean where I prepared my mind,...

What does the Appalachian Trail have to do with BNT?

The AT (Appalachian Trail) is a 2,100 mile footpath that connects 14 states from Maine to Georgia. The trail runs through privately owned land, farms, town, cities, hills and mountains. Without any hiking or camping experience, to decide to hike even a small portion of the trail is ambitious. When I decided in June on a 145 mile trek from Vermont through Connecticut to New York, it was no surprise the...
